SLIPKNOT drummer Joey Jordison, who’s out with ROB ZOMBIE on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, told The Pulse of Radio that there have actually been talks about SLIPKNOT‘s future following the death this past May of bassist Paul Gray. “Shawn (Crahan) just came out, the ‘Clown,’ he just came out to the Mayhem festival, and we sat down and we talked and we’re starting to map out the game plan right now,” he said. “So there is another SLIPKNOT record already kinda in the making. You know, we’re getting timelines set and, you know, it’s gonna be a little bit but there’s definitely another record. Paul would always want us to make another record. He wouldn’t want the band to stop — SLIPKNOT was his life.”
Jordison will continue his gig as Zombie‘s touring drummer into the fall, while also promoting a new record from his band MURDERDOLLS.
Meanwhile, SLIPKNOT frontman Corey Taylor — out on the road now with his other band, STONE SOUR — has been saying in recent interviews that it’s “too soon” for SLIPKNOT to decide its next steps. Taylor told England’s NME TV, “As far the future . . . it’s really soon to tell. None of us can even fathom what to do yet. But as soon as we do, the world will be the first to know. It’s not that we don’t want to, it’s just like, how do you do what makes sense when such a big piece of that puzzle is gone
